OnePlus is planning to launch the OnePlus 6 in early 2018 but isn’t working on the rumored OnePlus 5T.
Last year, the company launched the 3T as a way to switch to the +1 version of the chipset (Snapdragon 820 to 821) and to raise the price a bit. Well, they did upgrade the selfie cam too.
This year, there will be no +1 for the Snapdragon 835 this year and OnePlus already played the dual camera card. Plus, it offers generous storage and RAM, so there’s not much for a T version to upgrade.
What will the OnePlus 6 be like? Tough to tell for now, but a move to a 6” screen.
Some previous reports suggested that the Chinese tech giant is finally looking to make a jump to a QHD (2,560 x 1,440) resolution with the OnePlus 6 but if the handset ends up featuring a bezel-less aesthetic, it’s more likely to have a screen with a QHD+ (2,880 x 1,440) resolution and ditch the 16:9 widescreen aspect ratio in favor of a taller 18:9 (2:1) image format.
The possible lack of bezels on the OnePlus 6 should also prompt its fingerprint reader to move to the back panel of the handset that’s likely to lose its physical Home button.
Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 845 is believed to be part of the upcoming package which is rumored to be available in two variants boasting 6GB and 8GB of RAM, respectively.
The former is said to sport 64GB of internal flash memory, whereas the latter will supposedly have 128GB of storage space and neither model is expected to ship with a microSD card slot, as was the case with the OnePlus 5 lineup.
If that’s true, we’ll hear from Carl Pei and co. about it early on in the hype cycle.
